Can anyone translate Chinese?

by ZeroC » Feb 20th, '10, 23:40

I was in the Asian store and they have a lot of loose leaf teas but i can't read Chinese so i don't know what each one means. They have 3 different ones of the same brand that say green tea and 3 that say Oolong but the color of the package and the symbols are different. Guess i could just buy them and see if any of them are good. The Oolong in the dark red packaging i did buy and it's actually pretty good, i bought one of the greens, not pictured, and it was not so good. So if anyone just happens to be able to translate these that'd be cool, i have 3 more pictures. They're all either 7 or 8oz for 7 bucks, figure if any of them are decent it'd be nice to have a cheap everyday tea.

First: Xi Hu Long Jing
Second: An Xi Tie Guan Yin
Third: Dong Ding Wu Long

The little gold sticker says te ji which is one of the highest (generally goes 2>1>te) with some other things. However those stickers are easy to fake. They will also usually have a little sticker that says the tea year.

Thanks for the translation, just for the record I guess the brand name of these teas is Blooming Choice. Also the Xi Hu Long Jing, An Xi Tie Guan Yin and Dong Ding Wu Long are all quite enjoyable. I've been drinking the Long Jing pretty non-stop for the past week. So even if they're not "authentic" I'm pretty pleased at 8 bucks for 7-8 oz. The Wu Long tastes very close to some more expensive Wu Long that I have, second and third infusions bring out a nice citrus note. The Long Jing has a nice natural sweetness to it and the An Xi Tie Guan Yin is quite light and delicate. What other gems i can find at random ethnic stores? Found some nice Sencha and Hojicha.

Thanks,
ZC
